Container Closure Integrity Testing: A Necessity for Pharmaceutical Industry

Over the past few years, the pharmaceutical industry is growing a tremendous pace. Considering patient’s health and safety, the drug products are expected to be free from microbial contamination and should be safe for use throughout the drug’s life cycle. Therefore, several quality checks are performed to ensure product’s sterility and stability. One of the

Accelerating Oligonucleotide Demand: A Force Driving The Contract Manufacturing Market

Since the approval of the first antisense therapy in 1998, oligonucleotides have been in light for their capabilities as therapeutic agents. Oligonucleotides are short synthetic nucleotide chains with immense potential in the diagnosis and treatment of a myriad of disease indications. In addition to therapeutics, these complex molecules act as a significant resource in various

Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) Library Preparation Kits: Revolutionizing the Field of Genetic Sciences

NGS has emerged as an evolutionary technology in modern biotechnology and healthcare research, enabling researchers to develop a better understanding of the cause and consequences of disease. Over the past few years, several companies have started offering a diverse range of genome sequencing products and services using various second and third generation sequencing technologies. Presently,

Rising Need of Autoinjectors

With the increasing global population, the incidence rates of several chronic disease indications, such as diabetes, anaphylaxis, rheumatoid arthritis and psoriasis, are on the rise. This has led to a rise in the demand for effective treatment options for patients suffering from these diseases. Further, in order to improve the quality of life in these

Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) Library Preparation Kits Market: Current Scenario and Future Potential

Since the introduction of a gene sequencing method by Frederick Sanger in 1977, the field of genomic data collection and analysis has evolved significantly. Advancement in DNA sequencing technologies have resulted in noteworthy developments in various healthcare-related research fields, such as diagnostics and personalized medicine. However, the conventional nucleotide library preparation process has several challenges,

Growing Demand for Oligonucleotides Proposes Shedload of Opportunities for Contract Manufacturers

In the 20th century, major research went into discovery of a therapeutic class with the primary purpose of interfering with the RNA expression linked to disease causing proteins, nowadays classified as oligonucleotides. These short, single-stranded DNA or RNA molecules have various applications in biopharmaceutical and biotechnology industries including, genetic testing, basic research, forensic analysis and


Myeloid cells represent a group of cells containing granulocytes, monocytes, macrophages, mast cells and dendritic cells, which play a key role in innate immunity. These cells are found in abundance in the tumor microenvironment and inflamed areas. The tumor recruits and modulates endogenous myeloid cells to tumor-associated macrophages, dendritic cells, myeloid-derived suppressor cells and neutrophils,

Bringing in Light Genome Editing Techniques: ZFN, TALEN and Meganucleases

Presently, there are several companies and universities, which are exploring the potential of different gene editing technologies beyond CRISPR for basic research, and the development of gene editing solutions. With the development of a variety of versatile DNA modulation technologies such as include zinc-finger nucleases (ZFNs), TAL effector nucleases (TALENs), engineered endonucleases / meganucleases (EMNs)

ADC Payload / Warheads and Rise in its Demand

With six approved drugs, namely POLIVY™ (2019), LUMOXITI™ (2018), BESPONSA® (2017), MYLOTARG™ (2017, reapproval), KADCYLA® (2013) and ADCETRIS® (2011), and more than 300 candidates in the pipeline (clinical / preclinical stages), antibody drug conjugates (ADCs) have emerged as a promising class of therapeutics for the treatment of various disease indications.
